EA Japan has revealed that the Wii U version of Need For Speed: Most Wanted will feature off-TV play, so you’ll be able to play the entire game on the Wii U GamePad, if you so wish. You will also be able to display menu content directly on the Wii U GamePad. Need for Speed: Most Wanted Wii U is coming to Japan on March 14th for 6,615 yen.

    • No they didn’t.
      It’s only ever an option. ZombiU doesn’t have off screen play. I’ll be surprised if a lot of first party games have off screen play, Zelda, Metroid, and even Mario probably won’t

  1. This should be a Mandatory feature for all basic games.

    Pretty much every game has this feature on wiiu except the ones designed around asymetric gameplay , Like ZombiU , Nintendo Land .

    Rayman Legends could be another one which is like that , but I hope not.

    Best feature ever. I actually like the soft look of the gamepad screen aswell. Sometimes it seems to decrease aliasing or hide it , maybe due to ppi or something I dunno….

    • Not that I’m complaining, mind you. I just find it a bit strange to make an info release about something that’s seems like a given with most Wii U games. I know that it’s an optional feature for developers, but it seems to me that since playing off-TV was one of the biggest promises of Wii U, that perhaps developer’s don’t announce it separately as if it’s some kind of news. Seems like you’d want to make off-TV gaming as standard and expected as possible. But again, not complaining here.

  2. Researched this game… on Youtube. It does look cool, but it’s like they took the grit and the ‘street’ out of Most Wanted. The 1st one had a story- the revenge on Razor pretty much drove you (lol) up the Blacklist. I hope they didn’t think the Muse opening would be a good substitute for a decent plot…
